My bullseye match gun, 97B"E", at 50 and 25 yards today
« on: February 01, 2018, 11:27:29 PM »
Those of you that have a 97B know it is a heavy, large pistol, with excellent ergonomics, especially for folks with large hands and long fingers.  I shot a local bullseye match with a 75B and 9mm and Kadet slides last weekend, but I am going back to the soft shooting, heavy, large 97B"E" for the 2018 match season, starting in February.  The video below (which won't finish uploading until about 12:30am CST) will provide some evidence of why.  I can pick the gun up after 2 months with the 75B, and shoot it pretty well with just a few rounds down range.  I'm not giving away anything to my 1911 buddies. 

I tried a blank target technique that has been very helpful in training myself not to chase the dot around on a bullseye and then force the shot.  I have found the drill shown below to be very helpful, especially when I haven't been practicing regularly. 

So, for those of you who are wondering if a 97B"E" would be a good match gun, especially for bullseye or other precision tasks, my answer is yes. 

Gun is excellent.  Shooter needs a few hundred rounds practice over the next few weeks. 

CZ-75B 9mm and Kadet, 97B"E", two P-09's, P-07, P-10C

Nice shooting. I shot bullseye at a local club. Always liked to shoot revolvers. I recently got a 97B and I may give it another go with it.
